Pantone colors are everywhere, and bright ones can especially be found in nature. The 'Pantone: Rain Edition' by Giuliano Antonio Lo Re and Matteo Gallinelli pays tribute to the color-matching system by showing vibrantly tinted puddles against dull cobblestones. The water seeps between the cracks of the streets, infiltrating the images with color. Although these colors could easily remind one of toxic waste, the out-of-place spills look more like paints that have been discarded onto the street by an artist.

Although water does take on shades of green and blue naturally, it is unusual to it in colors like neon oranges and yellows. The designers describe that their series is made with a mixture of colors from the "Pantone Universe, rain, dust and a pinch of creativity."
